“Occupy Wall Street” branch open for business in Iowa

A  Twitter account #OccupyIowa  opened for tweeting October 1.  There’s a Facebook page as well.  It looks like a rally is being planned for this Sunday in Des Moines.  However, it doesn’t look like students at Iowa colleges and universities are tweeting about walking out of class today, as the walk-out was to start at noon eastern which would be 11 o’clock Iowa time and surely there would be tweets, videos, photos about it by 1:10 p.m.  There are some tweets in the twitterverse about a 7 p.m. occupyiowacity event in Iowa City tonight.

Kyle Munson of The DMR noted the challenges the movement will have in staging long-term “occupations” during the winter.  HOWEVER, current temperatures in Iowa are way above normal.
